Fees can be paid daily, weekly or termly and must be paid from the start of the term. You can pay by cash, cheque (payable to Eccles Pre-School) or via online banking. Fees are payable in advance and MUST be paid even if your child is absent whatever the reason may be. You will receive an invoice at the beginning of each term explaining the fees that you owe for that term. If you wish to receive this invoice by email please inform the Pre-School. All children are funded for 15 hours per week from the term following their third birthday and some may be entitled to funding from their second birthday. Also from September 2017 many three and four year olds can benefit from Free Early Education and Childcare being extended from 15 to 30 hours. Please see the link under Important Information for more details.
Arrears of Fees
You will be contacted by our administrator by letter for fees outstanding. The Committee appreciates that due to unusual circumstances problems can arise with payments of fees. Please contact the Committee immediately via your key person if you have any problems so we can do our best to help. Any parent/carer owing more than five sessions will be spoken to in person by a Committee member and may have their sessions reviewed (please see our fees policy held at Pre-school for more details). This applies to fee paying hours only. We rely on the prompt payment of fees to cover costs of the Pre-School which include wages, rent, insurance and equipment.
